COMMENTS FROM THE PASTOR:
Don’t forget the last Church-Wide Picnic of the season on Sunday, September 2nd at 1:00 PM. Join us for this special time of fellowship and food.
We will be voting on Deacons in just a few weeks, I hope you will saturate these men in your prayers. The Deacon Ministry is part of the front lines in Spiritual warfare. These Deacons and their families need the encouragement of the body of Christ. If you can, would you take a moment and let them know your appreciation for their service.
I Corinthians 13:13, “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.”
Faith is the means by which I obtained a relationship with God. The Lord was merciful to me and through faith in His precious Son my name was added to the Lamb’s Book of Life. By faith I joined the countless millions who have been delivered from the bondage of sin. Hope is what I get when I read the truths of the Word of God. I have never seen my Lord Jesus with my natural eyes, but I hope to see Him one day with my glorified eyes. I have never seen heaven, but I hope one day to make heaven my home and see all of its splendor. The Bible says, “that eye hath not seen nor hath ear heard, neither hath entered into the heart of man the things that God hath prepared for them that love him.” I hope to enjoy all of these wonders one day. Charity, or love is the main thing, and the reason that it’s the main thing is because, love is a gift that is not only given to us but a gift that is given through us. God so loved the world that He gave. Love is the gift that causes us to give of ourselves and to minister to others. Love causes us to be longsuffering with those who are in need even if they don’t really want it. Love is the Gift that motivates service, sacrifice, and selflessness. Let it be our prayer to be filled with the greatest of all gifts to the Glory of God.
I John 4:16b, “God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”
In Christ, Ricky
